The results of the German election are in and, as expected, the current coalition has come to an end. Although the CDU won a solid 42.3 percent, its junior partner, the FDP, dropped to 4.5 percent, below the threshold for representation in the Bundestag--the first time in its history.
The Alternative party garnered 4.8 percent, also below the threshold but enough to do damage to the current government.
Only two options are left: a Grand Coalition or an SPD-Green-far left alliance. My bet is on the former.
The good news is the FDP is serving the most delectable Berliners--jelly-filled donuts. But that's about it.
